It was a beautiful day on Saturday for Club MomMe’s Spring Fest! With a hotel packed full of the best vendors in the baby and mommy category, guests had a blast and took home a fabulous gift bag with some amazing products! The annual event, hosted by Club MomMe is great for parents, expectant parents and families with young children who will spend the day learning from the most popular speakers and amazing panels designed just for you and your family. Dr. Harvey Karp was on hand with a panel discussion on the best of baby & toddler products. Not only did guests get to enjoy these incredible speakers, they also were treated to manicures from Ella + Mila in the pamper lounge! Out on the deck and grassy area was a fun activity area for the kids to enjoy along with product testing from brands such as Britax, Orbit Baby, Ergo Baby, Joovy and many more! Celebs in attendance were Stacy Keibler, who looked beautiful in a long gown showing off her baby bump and Lydia McLaughlin from the Real Housewives of Orange County, looking gorgeous as usual and enjoying the pamper lounge. One of the coolest services that was provided to guests with a VIP ticket was the car seat and stroller cleaning by Clean Bee Baby! There’s no way to get away with a clean car seat when you have a little one, so it was such a great treat for Clean Bee Baby to provide cleanings to so many families! I had such a great time setting up the nursery vignette. The incredibly talented Tania Fischer made the gorgeous flower paper backdrop in bright Spring Fest colors. It was definitely a show stopper! I kept the crib and crib bedding neutral with a modern black and white graphic print for the bedding to balance out the bold backdrop. I think it turned out amazing. What do you think? Do you dare to go bold?! Let me know your thoughts and I look forward to seeing you at the next Family Fest!
It was all about the ladies in red for me at last night’s 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards. Actress, Morena Baccarin, Culinary expert Gail Simmons and Entertainment Tonight’s, Brooke Anderson all arrived on the red carpetshowing off their baby bumps in red (and coral) floor length gowns.
Nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for her work in Homeland, Morena glowed in a gorgeous strapless dress featuring an empire waist and embellished belt. The flowy gown draped to the floor with a waterfall effect over her pregnant “due any day” belly as she stunned on the red carpet. Her wavy brunette locks were pulled up in a soft updo and her redpout was perfect in completing her chic, sexy, mama to-be look.
At six months pregnant, Gail Simmons got some red carpet help from designer, Oscar de la Renta. Also in a floor length dress, Gail opted for a sweetheart neckline and kept her jewelry simple with gorgeous teardrop earrings and a silver clutch.
Entertainment Tonight’s Brooke Anderson looked radiant as she covered the Primetime Emmy Awards in a coral Pea in the Pod maternity gown. I love the structured details in this dress because it doesn’t look maternity at all! The custom made silk crepe dress featured a peplum detail over her pregnant belly and a high slit to show a little leg! I love the structured one shoulder and her purple Manolo Blahnik pumps. She looked absolutely beautiful, nailed this look and has my vote for best dressed celebrity baby bump at the Emmy Awards 2013 Red Carpet! Who was your favorite of the night?
